Longview Boat Shed Nebbiolo Rosato 2014
This is still just a bit neutral, the understated nose and textural, lightly tannic palate working as a chewy food wine, but a little lean to be great, not helped by quite high acid.
I like the intent, but would love to see this wilder – made less like a cool white (in tank, under temp. control, with minimal oxidation) and more like a textural red (in barrel, with lees). Still worthy though.
